This is the first Australian book to question the decline of gay life. It studies the changing face and purpose of the Mardi Gras, which has always attracted thousands of gay visitors to Sydney. Employing a strong narrative, powerful and often moving and written for a general audience, it includes interviews and the real life stories of 10 gay men and includes the author's reflections on his own journey.This book spans a generation of gay life, from the early activist origins of Mardi Gras to the confident, perhaps even tired, gay Sydney of today. Charting the life stories of ten very different gay men, Robert Reynolds asks whether gay life has contemporary relevance, or if being gay has lost its air of transgression and simply become another lifestyle niche. The answer may surprise you.

Reviews

Gay life seems to have disappeared like the Cheshire Cat, leaving just a cheeky grin. Reynolds explains where it's now hiding. The radical, the uber-gay, the clone, the clubber, the homeboy - they're all here, talking to Reynolds, and what they have to say about being gay now makes for an engrossing, confronting and often very moving book.' - Robert Dessaix
